Don’t Be a Victim to the Media Chaos
What you put in brain matters and all forms of media (social media, radio, television) are saturated with stories about Trump. Stories that are divisive, that are designed to create culture wars, that pit us against each other.
If you put that stuff in your brain all the time, your brain is going to be shaped by it.
Learn how to actively shape your brain in healthy ways with this guide to neural plasticity that was developed by Eazl’s well-being researcher Ludell Jones and based on emerging brain science from UC Berkeley.

While it’s good to be aware of what’s happening in the world don’t be a victim to the news.
More Innovation and Opportunity than Ever
This is a time of tremendous innovation and opportunity. You can learn in amazing new ways from great people on Udemy (and not just Eazl courses!) and learn from some of the smartest people in the world for free using EdX.
Industries everywhere are being disrupted and change is OPPORTUNITY. It’s not just about big-money startups, either.
Glenn Carroll’s research at Stanford shows that well-run small businesses that embrace their authenticity have a distinct and sustainable advantage over tired old big brands using the same old tricks.

Have the Courage to Build Bridges
It is in the interests of selfish oligarchs for us to stay home and stay divided. When we don’t do meaningful things, we consume to fill the void.
COURAGE will lead you to OPPORTUNITY.
In my personal experience, organizing on Chicago’s South Side has shown me that there is power in diversity, that smart, well-intentioned people are building inspiring things in SO MANY places.
I encourage you to find the good in people, to find the good people, and to build bridges.
Have the courage to say “no” to the Trump media chaos. You can take back the control by making small meaningful steps towards solving problems that matter.
